by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Chen has struggled in his last two outings in raising his ERA from 2.53 to 3.13. He has worked his way out of jams, but has allowed seven runs on 19 hits in his last 12 innings. His saving grace has been control - he has not walked a batter during that stretch.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:03 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Delino DeShields has been bouncing between center and left field the last few weeks, but now that Josh Hamilton is starting in left field, the team has to get creative in ways to keep DeShields in the lineup. 

Although, the Rangers gave a glimpse of their potential plans Wednesday against the Indians, as DeShields played the final three innings at second base after starting in center field.

"I can see him getting enough at-bats to keep him engaged in that leadoff spot for us," manager Jeff Banister told MLB Network Radio on Tuursday. "It was nice to see him at second base."

DeShieds is batting .316 with a .418 on-base percentage and .857 OPS in his last 17 games.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

These will not be rehab starts, as the Orioles plan to option him to Triple-A, according to MASNSports.com. Gausman will throw three innings or 45 pitches on June 6, and then four innings on the 11th. 

Gausman has been out of action since the beginning of May with the shoulder injury. The team has not indicated when they expect him to rejoin the team.

Rangers OF Josh Hamilton gets first hit of 2015
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(11:46 am ET) Rangers left fielder Josh Hamilton recorded his first hit of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Indians. It was a simple single for the veteran, but after a rough offseason, manager Jeff Banister says Hamilton is feeling good.

"The smile on his face, the energy he shows up at the ballpark with, and the in game has been special," Banister told MLB Network Radio.

"Right now his body feels better when he just keeps going out there, so we stay in direct contact with how he is feeling."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
